  • Damn Chris that’s one hell of a ride and the dirt getting dumped, great video, love your videos keep them coming. A+ for you Chris

  • Man if i had one of these things or could even use one, id have holes you could park cars in all over my garden. Love wathing them move dirt about.

  • What makes you think that better material for plugging leak?

  • Can someone explain the point of this? To me it looks like he Doug a hole only to just fill it in?

  • was this repair at no cost to the customer?

  • I liked around <a href="#" class="seekto" data-time="630">10:30</a> ish U mentioned about making the work space wider because this Volvo EX has a Big Booty !! Gotta LUV That !! HAHA 😂

  • I want to work for this guy !

  • man you got some big cojones ,way up high. careful Chris. we need you !!.

  • Wish i knew what benenite is

  • just curious but could you seal that layer of shale with bentonite cost effectively?

  • this guy is a xcelent operator

  • Where are you out of

  • it'll wash off, turned into a major excavation, could that be "grouted" to prevent the weeping

  • maybe the bull shit filter is pluged up lol

  • Weee wee wee weeeeeee

  • Man how do you do that all day?

    • I assume that you are referring to 'operating heavy equipment' all day? Operating hvy equipment gets in to your blood. It is like anything else - if you enjoy building stuff and are one of the operators that is motivated to make a profit for the company that you are working for - or you are the owner of the company - the time goes by real fast. You're focused on the the project, the critical path of each step of the project and the completion of it - with the highest level of craftsmanship. I was an operating engineer (the official designation for the craft) back in the seventies and even though my career of mainly management and administration (including ownership of a construction company) was certainly less demanding (physically), as I look back, I look back fondly - and actually would love to get back up on some 'iron' again. Keep in mind, the equipment today is a whole lot better (in every way - esp for the operator) than what we were running back in the day, but it doesn't matter because operating really does get in to one's blood. I think that you can easily find numerous postings of other former operators reminiscing - in just about any heavy equipment video / channel.

  • Must be close to Durham

  • Have a friend that had shale rock in his pond. After digging fractured shale. He drained the pond and treateded it with dimetuitous earth and stopped the leak

  • Why couldn't you dig the pond on out and add that aquifer to the pond? Already had the dirt built for the new outer wall when you dug down.

  • Ever heard of bentonite? It ain't free but it's pretty cheap.

  • Good job with the excavation ..The videos defently need some editing.

  • Most boring bit watching dirt on the move. Like watching chocolate melt

  • It probably feels like your loading with a teaspoon because you ARE loading with a teaspoon

  • I've been around this stuff all my life and I must say, you are one of the most efficient operators that I've ever had the pleasure to watch. Every swing has its purpose. Usually when you see an operator pad up onto a mound of dirt to track out on it, they'll take 20 minutes to make it all perfect and that leads to alot of down time. I always throw a little on each side to keep my belly off the pike and get to it. The tracks will level the rest. Keep up the good work.

  • Wow. What hole!

  • That pond was flood right?

  • Ain't no such thing as E-Z digging 73 Ed

  • The videos are very good n Descriptive, Mr Dirt Digging & Dozer De Vince. 😄✅😎 BTW, you are Only on the pavement for 55 seconds Empty, and 1.8 minutes with a Load..!!👍⌚️

  • Ga,Day Bubba!! that's some reeeel good work ya dooing tharr

  • GB, you sir are very good at your job! I just wish you were closer cuz I truly need my land cleared around my lake! These local companies to me are nothing more than fly by nighters! lol.

  • Y do u keep ur window and door open I like the ac

  • your 1 hell of an operator SMOOTH !

  • Surprised that haul truck allowed on a public road

  • Have you ever dug up any artifacts by any chance with all the excavation work you do...

  • Close you're eyes "officer Hoover"nothing to see here😂😂

  • Its amazing how well the engine brake works in a Moxie.... just as good if not better than a road truck.... I ran a Deere and it about damn tossed you in to the windshield.

  • Ever had to dig for a outside shithouse

  • Yall are doing a very good job now I need a job

  • Be a lake where you got the dirt from

  • Do you own all this equipment or rent it?

  • Nice!

  • Ozarks...Appalachian. ..flood plains of many rivers...remainders of glacial telles...hundreds of miles from sources..?

  • Sedimentary...runoff from early geology features...?

  • Some kinda NEBIRU rusty crud been dumped all over south/ eastern seaboard. ..long ago....Huh .

    • This stuff is a jawbreaker. ......

    • Enki?

    • You talking crazy but I love it.

  • Arch type seam...?

  • Add 16 inches of clay to the bottom of the pond...an example of a porous bottom.possubly also the seam is curved or raced and can gather and send water any direction...! .

  • All of the different views I'm thinking you're in competition with JayPaydirt

  • I'm starting to think after watching your videos, you just love playing in the dirt.

  • Damn dude you didn't give that truck much room on the other side

  • What size excavator is that?

  • Dumper truck sounds ace :o)

  • ALL THAT SCRUMPTIOUS CLAY DIRT YUMMY

  • I would suggest having a separate audio recording device, maybe even as your main audio source with the camera audio as the backup.

    • Do you use P mode at all or does it use too much fuel

  • Why couldn't you backfill with the clay you dug out before you hit the slate ?

  • Always so satisfying to watch someone operate a excavator like its second nature

  • When you put a soil bank up you need to dig a key trench plus you will see drainage trench’s if digging a straight into soil you mark drainage runs and dig out

  • Everyone knows curse words make dams stronger

  • What style of controls do you use? "CAT" or "JD".. looks like JD...

    • he uses Cat left joystick is for the stick and swing, right joystick for boom and bucket

  • Very good operator in many ways!

  • the more digging you do on that shale the worse it will get , water will find its way eventually through shale rock , don’t think it will work, but i hope it will , best of luck with it

  • I wonder if that rock is some ancient structure

  • אתה מצוין,עובד רגוע מדויק,זריז.בהצלחה🌷🇮🇱

  • Rototilt would be nice😉

  • What a show off!!!!!! Made in USA! The VOLVO excavator is FAST!!!

    • @Magnus Hansson genius, I will learn how to ...wright 😂😂😂😂 But, you must learn to read too!!!

    • @Ιωάννης Learn how to wright then

    • @Magnus Hansson Genius, the show off made in USA!!! VOLVO everybody knows where come from!!!

    • Volvo is from Sweden

  • terrible

  • Nice to - finally - see a compactor on one of these jobs. You might actually be getting more than the 80-85% RC that you were getting from that next-to-worthless track walking you were doing with that skidsteer...

    • For such a small pond , what track pressure for depth of lift in red clay , outside of the overflo drain , is usually required ?

  • 😴 💤 -- Man, you have got nice equipment, and you appear to be very good at operating it .... BUT .... your video production skills are sorely lacking. So boring that you put me to sleep. For example: the drive to the dirt pit, and especially the drive back with the load of dirt .... BORING. The camera was mounted on top of the cab so that we got to see the load of dirt all the way back? Seriously? Maybe it's just the TYPE of jobs you do that do not allow for more interesting content. But you should look into making your videos more captivating. Maybe some time lapse, and some editing out the repetitive stuff and just showing the peak moments, and an intro of you on the ground walking through and explaining the project, and then a closing video of the same, and maybe some good music tracks (not country though please), might liven up your videos. I have tried to watch two of your videos now, and could not make it all the way through either of them. Good luck!

  • How dare you talk about my grandpa

  • Looks like a little damage to the left cab side on the 160

  • Chris I think 1/2 of your subscribers must be cops or government employees who have never worked in the real world. Who gives a crap if he drove the Volvo on the street. You gotta do what you gotta do sometimes.

  • What all kind of work do you do?

  • Nice work got to love that rock. Where those skid marks I saw on the road 🤔😂

  • whats your KW? T880 with a 13 or 18 speed tranny?

  • You must have got a permit to drive the Volvo truck on a public road. Correct❓

  • You should name the 250 Judy... big booty Judy

  • I also have a small man made pond with my driveway across the dam. The other side of the dam is close to a 25 ft difference at the bottom. The leak comes out at the bottom. My property is mostly sand and shale. I cannot for the life of me find the leak. It looks like a small spring, and once the pond gets to a certain level, the "spring" dries up. No apparent hole, just seepage, at peak flow, around 2 gpm.

  • Perhaps adding bentonite to the bottom may help seal that shale ledge. Mixing a slurry of this product then adding, worth a try.

    • Was just gonna say that.

  • All your video's are fixing leaks on dams you've built. This is not a great advertisement for your ability.

    • Shane Von Harten He has hundreds of videos and two of them are fixing the same leak on one dam. Troll

  • Could u do a video on the equipment at the dirt pit?

  • Up here in Northwest NJ, the guys who put in septic systems love shale outcroppings. Send the water out and never stop. We have loads of that "Kittatinny Mountain Range" All shale, all the time. Nice work Chris.

    • I have the same issue in Central Jersey with the red and purple shale.... especially down by the Raitan river by New Brunswick...it's like thick blocks the size of a truck hood
